Summary The DuPree African-American Pentecostal and Holiness Collection consists of original and secondary material documenting the history, beliefs, and activities of hundreds of Pentecostal and Holiness denominations, congregations, and individuals. The collection is arranged in four series: Denomination and Congregations, Individual Clergy and Evangelists, Subject Files, and Non-Pentecostal Material, and consists of news clippings, newsletters, journals, yearbooks, sermons, bulletins, brochures, programs, articles, theses, book excerpts, and other printed material. There is virtually no correspondence.
The greatest amount of material is represented by the Church of God in Christ, the largest Pentecostal denomination. Other denominations for which significant bodies of material exist include Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith, United Holy Church of America, and Bible Way Churches Worldwide.
The Individual Clergy and Evangelists series contains articles, chapters of books, news clippings, programs, sermons and other printed material documenting lives of Pentecostal ministers as well as independent evangelists, such as Father Divine (a.k.a. George Baker), William S. Crowdy, Prophet Jones (a.k.a. James Francis Jones), Robert C. Lawson, Arenia C. Mallory, Charles H. Mason, Lucy Smith, and Smallwood Williams.
The Subject Files series contains primarily articles, excerpts from books, theses and other printed matter concerning Pentecostal and related topics such as glossolalia, charismatic movement, gospel music, and whites in Pentecostalism. The fourth series, Non-Pentecostal Material, contains general bibliographies and articles on the black church, black Hebrews, and race and religion.
